We have created standardised assessments for both English and Maths for the programmes. For Maths, we have provided one assessment paper. Your students should take this before the programme and then the same paper after, to measure their progress.
For English, the assessment consists of one fiction paper and one non-fiction paper. The pre and post programme assessments are based on different reading material.
You can download this material along with the Answer Books and Mark Schemes below.
Your students will take these assessments on paper before moving onto the SchoolOnline platform to start their learning.
Please allow around 60 minutes for the Maths assessment and 60 minutes total for the English assessment (30 mins for each paper).

Preparing Your School
As SchoolOnline runs on a web browser with the video tutorials hosted on Vimeo, there are some key checks you will need to make prior to commencing the programme to ensure everything runs smoothly from Day 1.
If your school is happy to permission vimeo.com broadly, this is the easiest solution. However if your school requires vimeo.com to be blocked, your IT department can also approve just the SchoolOnline Vimeo video links. You can access the full URL list by clicking on the link below.
If you need any assistance with this process, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
For Your Programme
The learning assignments during the programme will be aligned directly to the programme of study you are following. We have created assignments that support the Autumn term White Rose curriculum, with each assignment having a Level 1 and a Level 2 option for students working at different abilities.
You will be setting each week’s course content as an “assignment” so you can track your students’ work and their results. We will prepare these lists for you so they are all ready to be set as assignments (and can help with setting the assignments as well!).
To support you in creating and marking assignments on SchoolOnline Classroom we have also attached two tutorial videos, walking you through how to set your assignments. If you would like any more support using the platform you can head over to our tutorial videos by clicking here or contact our live helpdesk through the green bubble in the bottom right hand corner.
